"tricks are for pimps, i perform illusions"

i love awards season, finally something to bet on other then poker. i was pretty acurate with my golden globe picks, lets see how close i came with the oscars:

Best picture-the departed-wow, i was surprised, i didnt even think this was in serious contention. i saw babel and little miss sunshine going up against each other. 0/1

Best actor-Forrest Whitiker-this was almost guaranteed after wins at every other awards ceremony this year! I knew he'd nab it but i was really pulling for a peter o'toole win. Venus was pretty slow but he was amazing and i dont think we'll be seeing many more films with the knight in them. 1/2

Best actress-Helen Mirren-another guaranteed victory. she was amazing. as good as penelope cruz was in volver, this wasn't even close! 2/3

Best supporting actor-Alan Arkin-eddie murphy was robbed. that's all i can say. little miss sunshine had a great cast, and alan arkin was a big part of that, but eddie murphy was robbed. 2/4

Best supporting actress-Jennifer Hudson-another lock. i dont think anyone really thought abigail breslin could have won it. the ladies of babel stood a chance, especially rinko kikuchi, but this was jennifer hudsons award to take. 3/5

Best director-Martin Scorcese- i wonder how many members of the academy voted for clint eastwood or steven frears this time around. im going out on a limb to say that it was most likely a landslide in scorcese's favor. 4/6

Best screenplay for the screen-little miss sunshine-truthfully i thought it was the queen all the way. bummer. 4/7

Best screenplay based on previous material-the departed-i had this one as the departed, but only after scratching out children of men, which i loved. 5/8

Best Documentary-An Inconvenient truth-there was stiff competition in this category, but Gore's doc. had this award from the beginning. 6/9

Best animated feature-Happy Feet-gotta give it to the biggest digital film of a few years. 7/10
